Raja Singh to lead Rama Navami procession
Controversial MLA T Raja Singh of Goshamahal who is currently suspended from BJP is set to lead the Ram Navami Shobha Yatra in Hyderabad on March 30.
On his Twitter, he shared his video inviting all ‘Ram-bhakt’ to join the procession.
Last year, he made provocative statements during the procession, and the Shahinayathgunj police station registered a case against the MLA.
In his speech, Singh spoke against the alleged boycott of Hindu vendors in the Old city on the occasion of Ramzan. He said, “If Hindus were to target the traitors (Muslims) similarly, they would run out of business and would not even be in a position to beg as even alms are given to the poor by Hindus.”
He further remarked, “If Hindus awaken, all Muslims will be vanquished.”
In August last year, the police issued a notice to the MLA in the hate speech case.
